Major League Players Elected to Hall of Fame as Players
Includes 2019 BBWAAelected inductees Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay, and Mike Mussina. 31 variables for each player. Team=primary team; BBWAA=Baseball Writers Association of America; Bat: R=right, L=left, B=both;
WAR=Wins Against Replacement: number of wins the player added to the team above what an "average" replacement player would add.
CS=caught stealing.
OPS=Onbase Plus Slugging; as a rule of thumb, a "good" OPS is a value that when divided by 3 results in a value that would be considered a "good" batting average.
Other variables are hopefully selfexplanatory.  treiland  Jan 25, 2019  37KB  5499

Oscar nominations
The data set contains the year, category, nominee and whether they won for all academy award nominations from 1927 through 2006. A good exercise is to use StatCrunch to compute the number of nominations for each actress in the ACTRESS (all caps) category along with the first and last year they were nominated.  websterwest  Mar 10, 2008  450KB  2927

Diamond Ring Prices.xls
The source of the data is a full page advertisement placed in the Straits Times newspaper issue of February 29, 1992, by a Singaporebased retailer of diamond jewelry.
The advertisement contained pictures of diamond rings and listed their prices, diamond content, and gold purity. Only 20K ladies' rings, each mounted with a single diamond stone, were considered for this study. 20K rings are made with gold of 20 carat purity. (Pure gold is rated as 24K.)
There were 48 such rings of varying designs. The weights of the diamond stones ranged from 0.12 to 0.35 carats (a one carat diamond stone weighs 0.2 gram) and were priced between $223 and $1086. The jewelry store adopted a fixedprice policy.
How Is Jewelry Priced?
In Singapore, the pricing of gold jewelry is simple. The price equals the current market value of the gold content (i.e., weight times the going rate per gram of gold) plus a craftsmanship fee.
However, the pricing of other jewelry like diamond rings is more complicated because they are not as standardized as gold jewelry. The price of diamond jewelry depends on the four C's: caratage, cut, colour, and clarity of the diamond stone. A good cut gives a diamond more sparkle. Colourless diamonds are the most prized. A flawless diamond has maximum clarity because the passage of light is unimpeded through the stone. Cut, colour, and clarity are subjective factors and are very hard for the layman to gauge.

x: length in mm (0–10.74)
y: width in mm (0–58.9)
z: depth in mm (0–31.8)
depth: total depth percentage = z / mean(x, y) = 2 * z / (x + y) (43–79)

Median sales price vs Median rent for housing in 50 cities
This data is obtained from Zillow and includes the median sales price and the median price for to rent a home in 50 cities, as of July 2018, taken from https://www.zillow.com/research/localmarketreports/
This will be an excellent data set to use to introduce correlation and regression.
Can we predict the median rent in a city based on the median price of homes sold in the city? It is also a good example to discuss the effect of outliers.  rosenthi  Sep 11, 2018  1KB  525

Baseball data for correlation and regression
This table shows the total number of runs scored, at bats, hits, etc for each of the 30 MLB teams for the 20092011 seasons.
////
Correlations and linear regression models can be calculated between the different numeric variables. A good exercise is to see which variables correlate most strongly with runs_scored.
////
As emphasized in the movie Moneyball, some of the classic metrics such as batting_avg is not as good as the newer metrics like OBP (on base percentage), SLG (slugging percentage), or OPS (on base plus slugging).
////
A guide to a few of the variables that may not be self explanatory.
Runs_Scored: The total of all runs (points) the baseball team scored by the end of the season.
Batting_avg: This is equal to the number of hits divided by at_bats
OBP: On Base Percentage. Similar to batting average, except that it takes into account walks and hitbypitch. Some players who don't have high batting averages, manage to get walked quite frequently.
SLG: Slugging  This weights hits to first base as 1 point, hits to second base as 2 points, third as 3, homeruns as 4, and divides the total by the number of at bats.
OPS  On Base Plus Slugging  this is just OBP added to the SLG numbers.  mileschen  Apr 17, 2012  6KB  3800
